Driver coaching

The closest thing to being inside the vehicle.
Imagine sitting side by side with every driver in your fleet. Imagine doing that without even leaving the office.  This is precisely what the Driver coaching module does for you.
Frotcom’s Driver coaching module provides unique insights for you to monitor how your vehicles are being driven.
 
You will be able to see, in real-time or in any moment in the past, how exactly each vehicle was driven.

Data collected includes* parameters such as accelerator and brake pedal position, current gear, retarder, torque, engine speed, and many others.

* The exact list of parameters depends on the vehicle’s make and model. Please contact us for more information.
The Driver coaching module starts by collecting many different types of CANBus data (through Frotcom’s Extended CANBus Collection service), on top of a second by second tracking mode (Frotcom’s Real-time tracking).
 
In the Driver coaching module, you have several tools to work with:

● Create Driver coaching sessions - You can select any route, executed in the past or being executed live. For these, Frotcom allows you to create the Driver coaching sessions, in which all parameters are compiled and prepared for visualization.

● Visualize the Driver coaching sessions - Once you select a session, you will see the Driver coaching panel, where you have access to multiple data for that session: vehicle positions on the map; street view; main parameters on a dash, along with averages and totals; and graphs with all the parameters.

● Time line control – You will be able to control the time line of the session like you do on any video. This allows you to focus on a certain section that you need to examine with extra detail.

● Customized graphs – You can use your own customized graphs, with up to 4 variables in each graph. This makes it very easy to visually compare several parameters at the same time (e.g. Engine speed vs. torque, or Engine speed vs. gear)

● Compare – See how different vehicles/drivers executed the same route. Based on the inspection of the driving sessions, you will be able to finally understand why some spent more fuel and others less.

"Fuel costs are one of the biggest expenditures for fleet managers. With effective driver training, using Frotcom Driver Coaching we had improved our fuel consumption, meaning we get more fuel for our money, having a better fuel consumption."
